Maman Sambo Sidikou the Current UN secretary general representative in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is not only a Disgrace to himself but also the United Nations as a all.

Even Nikki Haley the US representative to the UN as Accused the UN Mission in DR CONGO one of the highly Corrupt UN mission in the World.

2. Stop à la Francafrique

Après la démystification de l’homme blanc par les Africains juste aux lendemains de la première et la seconde guerre mondiale, il n’y a plus de raisons valables pour que l’Africain continue de courber l’échine devant un Français. Ils ont fait les mêmes écoles, les mêmes sciences métaphysiques et ont soutenu les mêmes thèses. Il est question aujourd’hui que l’Africain accepte sa couleur de peau, sa nature et son environnement social et géographique pour se lancer dans la reconstruction de son patrimoine.

L’un des combats africains de notre ère, c’est le dogme culturel français. Les Africains doivent savoir que RFI, TV5, France 24, CFI et tous les instituts français en Afrique ne sont pas là pour révolutionner l’Afrique. Ils sont là pour détruire le tissu culturel africain et doivent être les premières cibles des Africains dans leur quête d’autonomie. A cela doit s’y opposer le boycott en valorisant les moyens culturels africains dans nos pays, nos quartiers et nos régions pour reprendre en mains nos destins collectifs.

L’éveil de la conscience africain est irréversible et l’Afrique plus que jamais doit faire dire à la France que sa ‘puissance africaine’ était celle d’une autre époque…
STOP A LA FRANCAFRIQUE! Voilà l'objet de cette pétition!

3. Stop the Congolese Conflict

The conflict in the Congo has raged for close to 2 decades, resulting in the bloodiest war since World War 2.

House Resolution 131 would change everything, sending a US Special Envoy and other resources to the Congo to help those who are continuing to be affected by the destructive civil war.

4. Demand Rwanda cease all support for M23 and remove Rwandan troops from Congo

As of November 20, 2012, the Rwanda-backed rebel group M23, known for mass rape, summary executions, other human rights violations, has taken the key city of Goma. They say they are moving onto Bukavu and plan to "take Congo."

Rwanda has reportedly sent in 3000 troops in support of this effort. History (1996,1998, and the early 2000's), all show this invasion will result in massive rape and other human rights violations.

5. Remove King Leopold Statue

King Leopold abused the rights of Congolese civils for decades and this is all well documented with details of how he ordered a variety of human rights abuses. It's an historical insult and symbol of colonial abuse and imperialism which should not be honored by anyone.

6. Stop the Use of Conflict Minerals in Products

The current war occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where rape is majorly utilized as a war tactic, is fuelled by conflict minerals, many of which are used in our everyday technological devices.

7. Stop the rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and arrest its leader Joseph Kony

Petition for the protection of those affected by the rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the arrest of its leader Joseph Kony

The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) is a rebel group originally from Uganda and formed over two decades ago to oppose the Ugandan government. Now the group has lost political focus and have turned into Africa's most lethal 'killing machine'. They are destabalizing the entire Central African region.

The LRA have spread to South Sudan, Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo. Atrocities include child abductions for the purpose of creating child soldiers and sex slaves, raping and killing and horrendous mutilations to instil fear on local civilians.

The LRA leader Jospeph Kony was given a Warrant of Arrest in 2005 by the International Criminal Court. He is still at large.

Currently the Ugandan army is receiving limited international support and it is the only official army aiming to end the LRA's tyranny.

International awareness needs to be raised on this issue. We therefore want the UK government to set an example for the international community by raising the issue of the LRA with other nations and to show support to governments of the region affected by LRA violence.

8. My son deserve a father figure in his life - Don't deport Jacques to DRC

My partner has been in prison for almost 6 months. We were hoping that his sentence will be reduced and finished on or before13th August. He appealed against his sentence and his appeal went through and he is hoping to attend the court on Friday.

I contacted our mp concerning his immigration papers the home office wrote to him that they are processing his case. He left me with a 51/2 weeks baby when they took him on 9th February, not fully recovered from operation and with no help at all as the social service said i was not entitled to any benefit for a baby as an international student and him being a failed asylum seeker.

I manage to survive mainly for the help of the church.
I was expecting that after his sentence my partner should be able to come out and support our baby so that i can go on with my studies but last week the immigration prisoner officer told him that no matter what happened to his sentence he is going to be detained and deported back to DRC congo.

I am so confused and i don't understand why are they doing this to my family, i am sure if he go back to his country he is going to be killed and i cant go with him, if i send my baby to masai land he will not be accepted (a baby from non maasai dad). I am struggling to stay in UK for the time being using some serving i had and help from the church worrying not to know what else i can do. I feel there is no justice at all.

9. Museveni, kagame, Kabila: stop violence!

The violence in congo and the violence against women in particular is just a consequence of the economic war organized by Museveni and Kagame with their disciple kabila in order to steal the natural weath of the DR of Congo.

According to me, these persons who are the root of evil must be brought to justice.

Concerning to what is happening in my homeland DRC in ourdays especially in Goma side, Nkundabatware has manifested things which cannot be tolerated in the world after killing the innocents people (mothers, children, old people) and the violence of the women by raping them all these should be the evidence to support and arrest him immediately without delaying.

We, the undersigned, make an urgent appeal to MONUC, Congo and Rwanda to fulfil their international obligations and immediately transfer Nkunda accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the D.R. of Congo to the ICC.

We call on MONUC, DR Congo and Rwanda to transfer Nkunda immediately now to the ICC without further delay.

13. Stop the violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

This petition calls on the citizens of various governments of the world and their political leaders to raise awareness and educate themselves concerning the ongoing destructive and devastating war going on in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and to make its resolution and end a major political priority in the coming days, weeks and months.

14. U.S. Aid for the Democratic Republic of the Congo

"The atrocities perpetrated by armed groups are of an unimaginable brutality that goes far beyond rape. They aim at the complete physical and psychological destruction of women. They are brutally gang raped, often in front of their families and communities. In numerous cases, male relatives are forced at gun point to rape their own daughters, mothers or sisters. Frequently women are shot or stabbed in their genital organs after they are raped," informs author Eve Ensler.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DROC) is the unfortunate country which houses the brutality described by Eve in the previous paragraph. For about a decade now the DROC has been involved in a civil war in which rape and violence against women has become the newest weapon and war tactic. Sadly, the rape does not end with the women; there are thousands of cases of children being raped as well. Over the past decade it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of women and girls have been raped in the DROC.

The following is a true account of violence in the DROC against a family of civilians, “May fifteenth of this year four heavily armed combatants came to our house. I wanted to hide my children, but I didn’t have time. They went after my daughter, and I knew they would rape her. But she resisted and said she would rather die than have relations with them. They cut off her left breast and put it in her hand. She said, “Please kill me.” They took a knife and put it to her neck and then made a long vertical incision down her chest and split her body open. She was crying, but finally she died. She died with her breast in her hand.”

Besides being cast out from society, rape victims are often infected with HIV or fistula. Fistula is a series of tears between the vagina, bladder and rectum due to brutality during rape and renders it’s victim incontinent. It is a rare ailment in developed countries, but in the DROC it is a frequent happening. There are hundreds of thousands of rape victims who often get fistula as a result of their rape, but only two hospitals in eastern Congo equipped for fistula repair surgery.

The violence, the brutality, the stealing of innocence, the raping, it all needs to stop. With thousands of reported rapes a month, the Democratic Republic of the Congo cannot wait. The hundreds of thousands of victims suffering from complications due to rape cannot wait. The potential other millions of victims cannot wait. They need help, today. They need our government’s help, today. But most of all they need your help, they need your signature. Today.

15. Petition for the Congolese Women's Campaign Against Sexual Violence in the DRC

PETITION FOR THE CONGOLESE WOMEN'S CAMPAIGN AGAINST SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN THE DRC INTENDED FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY -

Right now there's a war taking place in the heart of Africa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and more people have died there than in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Darfur combined. The most frequent targets of this hidden war are women.

It is, in fact, a war against women, and the weapon used to destroy them, their families and whole communities, is rape. It's the deadliest conflict since World War II. Within the last ten years, more than four million people have died and the numbers keep rising.

The United Nations was called in and today their mission is the largest peacekeeping operation in history. In some villages as many as 90 percent of the women have been raped.

16. Innocent Must Stay Campaign

June 8, 2006

Innocent Nkung, a teacher and human rights campaigner, arrived in the UK in May 2005 after fleeing for his life from the "Democratic" Republic of Congo where he had been demonstrating for free elections and for an end to the large-scale attrocities and human rights abuses that the Congolese people are currently facing.

He is being supported by local people who have helped him in his campaign to stay in the UK. We have been raising awareness of the issues in Congo by arranging Congolese social evenings for the community with traditional food and music.

Here we have discussed such topics as the reasons for the poverty in Africa and the refugee crisis and why globally we are all responsible. Innocent has given so much to our community in terms of devoting the majority of his time to volunteering for good causes and in providing unpaid french tuition to school children and we continue to support him in his aim to present 5,000 signatures to the UK Home Office to support his application for asylum.

He has also gained the support of our local media, our MP and the UK Respect Party. At present we have 3,000 signatures and we hope to reach our target by the end of July when we shall present them to the Government.

If we fail and the Government decide to ignore all the current evidence of what awaits those deported back to Congo, this warm and amiable man will certainly be murdered upon his return.

17. Stop the World Bank carve-up of the Congo forests!

We are asking people around the world to sign an online petition asking the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Read on to find out more, and don't forget to forward this to friends and colleagues, as we need as many signatures as possible.

Logging the Congo rainforests will cut down more than just trees!

The rainforests of the Congo - which are the second largest on Earth after those of the Amazon - are imminently threatened. New laws being introduced under the guidance of the World Bank, as well as a 'zoning' of the country's forests, will potentially see an area the size of France handed out to logging companies.

35 million people (75% of Congo's national population) live in and around the forests, and depend on it for food, shelter, and natural medicines. The forests are also home to thousands of plant and animal species, including the lowland Gorilla, chimpanzees, forest elephants, and the rare okapi. So far, the rainforests have largely been spared widespread destruction.

However, the new laws, which are due to come into effect this year, will encourage a massive expansion of the timber industry, including a 60-fold increase in industrial logging.

This could be the start of the first major environmental and humanitarian catastrophe of the 21st century.

The Rainforest Foundation, along with dozens of environmental and human rights groups from the Democratic Republic of Congo is calling on the World Bank to immediately halt plans for the expansion of industrial logging of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and to ensure that the rights of people living in the forest are respected.

Please spare two minutes to sign the online World Bank petition and forward this email on to your friends and colleagues?

Yours sincerely

The Rainforest Foundation
